Last week, pupils and parents alike were treated to an excellent re-telling of The Christmas Story through our Nativity Play. Children from our Nursery and Reception classes led a superb performance which included many wonderful songs, clear confident speaking and (of course!) lots of ‘wriggling’. See if you can watch the highlights below without wriggling yourself!
On Tuesday morning, pupils and parents alike were treated to an excellent re-telling of the Nativity story. Children from our Nursery and Reception classes led a superb performance which included many wonderful songs, brave acting and lots of drumming! The children all spoke beautifully and extremely clearly. All the teachers, parents and siblings were very proud.
Last week both Reception classes went on a trip to Tesco as part of their ‘People at work’ topic. The children got to experience life behind the scenes in a supermarket and see what it is like to work in a variety of different roles.
The children got to sample delicious fresh fruit and vegetables from the store’s Produce department, make their own bread rolls and taste scrumptious cookies in the bakery. We even got to meet a fishmonger who showed us how to gut a fish!
A fun-filled and educational day was had by all. Thank you Tesco!
Both Reception classes have enjoyed reading ‘Open very carefully – a book with bite.’ After discovering the pesky crocodile had escaped from the book and destroyed their classroom, the children came up with ideas as to where Mr Crocodile had gone to next. Each child was given their own copy of the text to keep, with thanks to the Bookstart initiative.
Reception Class 1 and 2 both had a wonderful trip to Brockholes Nature Reserve. We searched for ‘tree cookies’, played running and hiding games, built dens, hugged trees and made mud. We also walked A LOT!
Pupils in reception have been learning all about space. The children in Mrs Flynn’s and Mrs Kingsley’s class have created some beautiful ‘magic milk planets’ by mixing together milk and food colouring – they look wonderful! Well done!
